One of the greatest of all times. Amazing sweeps and takes the dueling guitar to a whole new level with Zacky vengeance. Listen to anything from a7x and your sure to be taking by the driving riffs of Gates
One of the most creative guitarists of the decade. Him and Zacky Vengeance combined make up the best duo that can be, and anyone who has heard their solos should know. For example, Bat Country.
At his age his already done things that made the world crazy! So just think when he reaches the age of SLASH, Jimi Hendrix or Van Halen...
So much feel in his solos, Seize the Day, 'enough saidV5 Comments
The best pure musician of the post 2000's... He will never be forgotten BECAUSE of his amazing guitar playing; not because of his cute singles that make hits on the radio.
You really have to dig deep to find out how great of a guitarist he really is. Most people think of his pop hits but see this guy live and you will understand. He changes versions of the same song in every concert to keep it fresh, real and raw. YouTube his stuff with BB King, Buddy Guy and Eric Clapton.
On many of his songs, you don't get to see his amazing abilities. I was blown away when he played with Keith Urban.
Most amazing guitarist ever! Just saw him live last night and still in aweV2 Comments
He is all time God of Guitar who the hell all these guys in front of him.
Slash means God n if you don't agree just go and listen only November Rain
Goddammit guys you dare put Hammett ahead of Slash? Gimme 1 Hammett solo whch even equals Slash's solos... - slash999
He really changes the pathway of music... Just drives it to the heavens... The way he synchronizes each and every note and leads it, just makes him the boss...
he is the finest guitarist. He is one who enjoy the feeling of music & go into deep. - alliah
as the list says about current material he is the best listen to death magnetic
Yes yes yes way better than the rest of these guys. Especially Hermain Li. - lilbullet111V2 Comments
Padge is way better than Kirk! No offense to metallica they are one of my favorite band but he's always using a whawha pedal to make his solos, and that's not very hard. Page does most of his solos with no effects except distortion and that stuff. His solos are so clean, dynamic, fast, melodic and it fits to the tone that they're playing.
Btr then any other band. His solos are lovely as heaven and clean too. He doesn't mix them or miss any good riff
Damn, padge is the best guitar player in this days, he should be in first place!
Most technical and one of the few modal players left
Deadly Combination of Speed and Melody...V1 Comment
How is Buckethead not higher up on this list? Buckethead is the only one of these guitarists that spans across every genre imaginable, from Prog rock to country to Avant Garde. And how many of the other people on this list can finger tap using 4 fingers on each hand? Just listen to Soothsayer and you'll no what I mean.
He was born in a coop, raised in a cage
Children fear him, critics rage
He's half alive, He's half dead
Folks just call him BUCKETHEAD!
Buckethead is the worlds best guitarist. Seeing him live will change the way you look at other guitarists and the way you see life in general. Buckethead is amazingly talented.
Great guitarist I have ever seen!
Danny "Orchestra" all the way! Nobody is better than Dan Donegan, COME ON PEOPLE!
Certainly all around best current guitarist breathing or otherwise
Just saw him and Disturbed live really impressive.
Most inovative/creative writing style I've ever heard I don't think any of these other guys can quite compare with the complexity of his work
He shreds on guitar... Look at those nice breakdowns and guitar solos
Man, this guy is like, really talented. he makes good riffs that match up with other instruments.
Best all around guitarist. Doesn't constantly overplay. Electric, acoustic, slide, dobro. Blues, rock, funk, country, swing, he can do it all.
The most versatile guitarist I have ever heard
Can't believe he's not in the car top 10V3 Comments
